Printing Digital Images: Why does it look like this on my screen and that on the paper?
Digital photography has fundamentally altered the way most photographers interact with their images, particularly the process of printing photographs. When shooting film, the printed image was often the only interaction a photographer had with their work, and photographers typically received a print of every image. Today, printing images is reserved for “special” occasions, typically when a particular image is desired for display, whether on a refrigerator or in a gallery. When printing images, photographers – both beginners and professionals alike – are often disappointed, expecting the final product to faithfully resemble the image on their screen.
This presentation explores common areas where the transition from digital image to printed photograph can go wrong. Topics will include basic overviews of color spaces and color management, monitor calibration, and tips for printing images with online labs. Additionally, the presentation will feature side-by-side prints from multiple labs (both local and online) that participants can interact with.
Please confirm your spot in the workshop via credit card payment here. The presentation fees are:
- $5 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance
- $8 for non-members
- $63 for a new membership + workshop
